East Tanfield Platform

Steve & Bob man the gates to let the works train through
Bill ready to push the stay through as Steve, Dave & Bob lift the support strap
Bill bracing the stay as it is tightened at the other end
Lifting the other end into position - Bob is keeping the strap vertical
The final strap being fitted
Bob & Steve removing faulty blockwork
Dave putting his energy into the job
The top of the brickwork is being cleared ready for casting a new top
It's slow work
Blocks being thrown down from the wall
Lifting more platform copings .....
..... & stacking them on the waggon
More faulty blockwork being removed
Steve manning the gates as the works train returns
